New Favorites

Want the rundown of what's currently on my it-list?
Read on....

I recently read an article about Clairol relaunching their line of Herbal Essences shampoos and conditioners.  Good move, Clairol!!  
By the time I made it to Walgreens, I ended up grabbing the last 2 bottles on the shelf.  Evidently, I'm not the only one who wants my hair to smell the way it did in the late 90's! 
And YES! YES! YES! it smells just like you remember!

West Elm jewelry tree

I am a jewelry FIEND!!!!  I was having major issues with necklace tangles, so I put this item on my Christmas wish list.  
It's not only pretty to look at, but it keeps my favorite baubles at arms reach so I can find them easily!

Revlon Photoready BB Cream 

Revlon has always been my favorite when it comes to Drugstore finds. 
The line of Photoready shades are great! 
I've been using Maybelline BB Cream for the last few months, but when I saw that 
Revlon had their own version, I decided to give it a whirl. 
My verdict is that Maybelline is a bit more like a tinted moisturizer and 
Revlon is more of a moisterizing tint.  Make sense?
Soooo, I use the Maybelline daily under makeup and the Revlon on the 
weekend or when I'm running errands and don't want to necessarily put on foundation . 
Great formula, I was impressed!

Too Faced Snow Bunny 

I hate when a brand or product is discontinued, don't you?
Sephora had a fantastic highlighting bronzer that I loved from their line, but when I finally got around 
to making it to the mall to get some more......lo and behold---of course they've done away with it! 
So, after milling around in Sephora for over an hour (which can set me into a huge spending spree, so I usually avoid actually walking INTO a Sephora....) I came out with Too Faced snow bunny. 
I really like it! I use the highlighter white and bronze side on my temples and brow, and the pink on my cheeks, it's almost like having a bronzer and pretty pink blush all in one. 

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette 

After reading tons of glowing reviews about Urban Decay's Naked palette, 
I decided to try out the Naked 2. 
These colors are so pretty, I just can't contain myself.  
A great mixture of shimmery nudes to blend together for day or night! 
If your'e looking for a palette that does it all, this one is perfect! 

Snake orb pendant necklace  

Like I said, I'm a jewelry fiend! 
This Stella and dot snake orb pendant was on my wish list this year and I was so 
excited when my sister-in-law and brother-in-law gave me this for Christmas. 
I LOVE it and wear it all the time. 
It's a fantastic piece to wear everyday with just about anything and easily adds a punch to an outfit. 
I've had loads of compliments on this since I got it! 

Mossimo Pearce pumps
Need work shoes that aren't skyscraper high? 
Look no further than Target, my friends.  
These Pearce pumps are my go-to shoes for work.  
They look chic and expensive but don't break the bank! 
Renegade bracelet

Here's another great gift I got for Christmas from Stella and Dot. 
My in-laws gave me the much-coveted renegade bracelet and I ADORE it! 
It's funky meets chic when you pair this with a pretty watch!

Bond No. 9 Bleeker Street

Last, but not least is my new favorite scent! 
On a shopping day out with friends, we ran in Pout! 
I've seen the Bond brand before but never really paid much attention to stop and actually smell it. 
After testing a few, I knew Bleeker Street had my name all over it! 
The site's description reads: 

Art, fashion, seduction, and dessert in liquid form. A warm and sensual aphrodisiac that glides from day into evening.  Notes of Violet leaf, cassis, jasmine, cinnamon, oakmoss, patchouli, vanilla, caramel. 
There's nothing better than a good perfume or scent to put you in a good mood! 
Happy Thursday! 
Missed you guys!!
